Actually, I disagree. I would pick Workingmans and AmBeauty far and away ahead of all others. Just MHO.

And, the more I have learned of 68, the more I have learned of how hard the practiced, the more I have come to appreciate that they did not really play free form during concerts...the Eleven was perfected in the studio, and they worked really hard at it...without the studio, I don't know what we'd have live...

that is very true, i agree that the practice in the studio payed of live, and that the two albums you mention are beyond compare.

My point is that if they had known how big and good they would become then they wouldnt have brought into the whole top 20 scene, not that they ever really bothered the top 20.

Ah--got you; esp noted for the sessions in the fall of 65, or with some of the numbers off the first album, though I love em anyway.
